Zvi Griliches Memorial Lectures

In 2001, in the memory of Zvi Griliches, the International Advisory Board of NES, with the full approval of the entire NES community, decided to establish an annual series of lectures in economics. “The Zvi Griliches Memorial Lectures” are presented by leading scholars and open to economic community in Russia and to the general public.

Zvi Griliches was one of the founders of the New Economic School in Moscow and was one of its main academic architects. Dr. Griliches served as a member of the International Advisory Board of NES from its inception until his death. During this period, Zvi has often visited NES. He taught econometrics at NES and helped to shape the program in econometrics. Dr. Griliches also helped enlist the first cohort of visiting professors to NES and he opened the door for the first graduates of NES to the best graduate schools in the US for Ph.D. Studies. He was NES’s Godfather.
